Germans in the Barossa Valley - Dotted among the vineyards of the Barossa Valley in South Australia are more than sixty churches to serve the religious needs of 10000 people. Many of the churches, crammed into an area with a radius of 12 miles, have been standing for over 100 years - a lengthy time in a State which had it's beginnings in the early nineteenth century.

He died in 1860 and his tomb stands in the Langmeil cemetery in the town of Tanunda
